FS: 65-note Rolls
By Brian Thornton

I was cleaning out my attic last month and found a couple of
boxes full of extra 65-note rolls.  I thought I'd bring them down
and peddle them.

As I brought down the last box I felt the sensation of something
crawling on me, then I felt the a sting, and then another.  I quickly
came to realize there was a hornets nest in this box of rolls.  I made
it outside and dumped the box on the ground and made some distance,
ripping off the jacket and shirt as I ran.  After about an hour all
the hornets had vacated the box.

Most of the rolls were okay but about a dozen were chewed up 'way
beyond playable.  The hornets had _recycled_ the paper from these rolls
to build their nests in some empty boxes that were also in the carton.

I first recovered all the good rolls.  As I was repacking the rolls
I noticed that my goat, Loki, who was browsing about, had found the
pile of damaged rolls.  I had the camera handy -- find out what Loki
thinks of Bartlett's "Polka De Concert":

Anyway, I have the survivors for sale, 67 rolls in all, without boxes
-- a wide range of music in fair to good condition, for $230.00 ($3.50
per roll).  Price includes shipping in the US

Please have pity on a poor boy (me!) who risked life and limb to make
these available.
